On Thursday afternoon, the Texas Longhorns decided to present an offer to one of the state’s truly dynamic playmakers in Arlington athlete Jahari Rogers, he announced on Twitter.

Rogers has begun to receive a lot of national attention on the recruiting trail due to his versatile play on the field. His offer sheet seems to grow on a weekly basis as he’s added 18 total offers from the likes of Arkansas, Baylor, Florida, Illinois, Louisville, Oklahoma, and TCU.

Throughout his junior campaign, Rogers was the starting quarterback for his high school and put up some ridiculous statistics. He racked up over 3,400 yards of total offense and accounted for 46 total touchdowns, leading his team to an undefeated district championship.

The Longhorns had been in contact with Rogers prior to extending an offer. Wide receivers coach Drew Mehringer and assistant Rashaad Samples have been communicating with the three-star prospect the most.

Rogers is now the 10th athlete to receive an offer from Texas as the attention turns enntirely towards the 2020 cycle. Although quarterback has been his primary position thus far, most schools are recruiting him as a defensive back or skills player.

At 6’0, 170 pounds, Rogers is ranked as the nation’s No. 697 prospect, the No. 60 athlete in the country, and as the No. 90 player in the state, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
